******** 



OLD BUSINESS 

Commissioner Lenvin said that station agents are reporting that 
the feedback from Muni Metro passengers is that there is a 
marked improvement in service since conversion to two-car train 
operation and use of "gap" trains during the afternoon peak 
period . 

84-006 



******** 

NEW BUSINESS 

President McCrea said that Pacific Telephone Company had 
erroneously installed telephones on the platform level in Muni 
Metro stations. These telephones were later removed leaving 
the telephone stands on the platforms. He requested that the 
telephone company be asked to remove the stands. 

******** 

PUBLIC HEARING — To consider response to the Metropolitan 
Transportation Commission staff recommendations contained in 
the report, Bay Area New Rail Transit Starts and Extensions. 

Mr. Douglas Wright, Director of Planning and Development, 
recommended endorsement of the BART extension to the San 
Francisco International Airport, endorsement of the overall 
goals and objectives of developing a long range program, 
supporting the three highest priority projects: (1) the Muni 
Metro Embarcadero turnaround facility, (2) the BART/Daly City 
turnback facility, and (3) a series of Caltrain improvements. 
He said that the proposed resolution reaffirms the priorities 
attached to other proposed Municipal Railway projects which 
will be considered in the MTC hearing process, and disagrees 
with the low priority given the proposed E-Line project. 

Commissioner Sanger suggested that since both the E and F lines 
are contemplated to use historic vehicles and share trackage 
over part of their routes, they should be considered as one 
project with two branches. 

President McCrea opened the meeting for public comments. 

Mr. Richard B. Morten, representing the San Francisco Chamber 
of Commerce, said the Board of Directors endorsed the MTC staff 
recommendations and urged the Commission to adopt the proposed 
resolution . 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, 
expressed concern about the priorities given to various 
projects. He said that the Muni Metro Loop at the Embarcadero, 
the E and F lines, the J line extension, and the Muni Metro 
extension to 4th and Townsend Streets should receive top 
priority. If the Mission Bay Project is built, he said that 
Muni Metro should be extended through the project area with the 
developer paying the cost of such extension. He spoke in favor 
of upgrading CalTrains service by extending service to a 
terminal closer to Market Street. 

Mr. Richard Sklar pointed out that the proposed extension of 
BART to the airport would not terminate at the airport but 
across the street. Additional funds would be needed to go into 
the airport and to build stations in San Mateo County. He 
suggested that a subway extension of CalTrains to downtown 
would be more beneficial. 

Mr. Jeff Carter spoke in favor of extending CalTrains to 
downtown to relieve traffic congestion in the 101 corridor. 



84-007 



Mr. Michael McGill, Executive Director, San Francisco Planning 
and Urban Research Association, said that SPUR's policy is that 
none of the $90 million 1-280 Transfer Study money should be 
spent on the CalTrains extension. SPUR's Transportation 
Committee recommends endorsing the MTC plan. However, it is 
felt that San Mateo County must buy into the BART system. If 
San Mateo chooses not to buy into the system and CalTrans 
proposes to upgrade its system to a high capacity, peak and 
off-peak service, then MTC should reconsider its priorities. 

The public hearing was closed. 

Commissioner Sanger said that the plan calls for three BART 
projects — one for each county. He expressed the opinion that 
the City is not prepared to add another BART line within the 
City. Therefore, the only way for San Francisco to access BART 
funding commitments is to extend BART to the airport on 
City-owned land and hope that San Mateo County will participate 
and fund stations for its residents. 

Commissioner Sanger amended the proposed resolution to state 
that the Commission endorses the Board of Supervisors' position 
and the MTC recommendations regarding a BART extension to the 
San Francisco Airport as a fulfillment of previous BART 
commitments to serve San Francisco. 



******** 

Resolution No. 84-0013 — Regarding final determination for 
permit application at 490 Second Street for the Transit Impact 
Development Fee. 

Mr. S. 0. Erickson, representing the property owners, appealed 
the staff determination on two points, the lack of notice and 
equity. He stated that the City had not mailed notices to 
those who had building applications on file with the Department 
of City Planning. In this case, escrow closed one day after 
the fee became effective. Regarding equity, he said that the 
building is in a M-l zoning district which requires the 
provision of one parking space for each 500 sq. ft. of office 
space. Such a requirement is not imposed in a C-3 district 
which is where the bulk of office space exists in San 
Francisco. He said that this amounts to an additional "tax" of 
$.73 per square foot. 

Mr. Thomas Jordan, Director of Special Services, reported that 
the City Attorney has ruled that it is not a valid legal 
objection to suggest that the fee is onerous to a group of 
people, such as M-l property owners, and therefore it should be 
discontinued or discounted. 

President McCrea pointed out that the Transit Impact 
Development Fee is an ordinance of the Board of Supervisors. 
As such, this Commission does not have the authority to make 
changes to it. He requested that staff submit possible 
changes, after the outcome of pending litigation, for 
recommendation to the Board of Supervisors. 



84-008 



******** 

Resolution No. 84-0017 — Authorizing bid call for Municipal 
Railway Contract No. MR-843 , and authorizing award to lowest 
bidder . 

Mr. Leo Jed, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, PUC, 
requested authority to award the contract to the lowest bidder 
as a means of accelerating the project. 

Commissioner Flynn expressed concern regarding fulfillment of 
Affirmative Action requirements. The resolution was amended to 
authorize award to the lowest bidder, unless there is a protest 
or any question regarding fulfilling Affirmative Action or 
Minority Business Enterprise requirements.

84-015 



to the Planning Commission as the response of the Public Utilities 
Commission to the proposed Downtown Plan; and to authorize staff to 
append technical and specific comments thereto. Commissioner Hsieh 
seconded . 

Resolution No. 84-0031 was unanimously adopted. 

******** 

Item No. 12 — Report on status of study regarding surface service 
on J-Line. 

Mr. Harold Geissenheimer , General Manager, Municipal Railway, 
reported that on December 28, 1983 the department started operation 
of 2-car trains on both the N and J lines. With only a few weeks 
experience with the new operation, he said that staff was not ready 
to make a recommendation at this time on surface operation of the 
J-Line on Market Street. He noted that such service would have to 
use the same track that is used for coupling of LRVs which may 
affect Muni Metro service. In addition, the PCC cars need 
considerable work at a time when the maintenance staff is engaged in 
LRV modifications. 

President Lenvin requested the calendaring in three months of an 
evaluation of existing Muni Metro operations and whether it would 
impact potential surface transit, a report on maintenance 
requirements and budget impacts of surface operation of the J-Line. 

Commissioner McCrea was excused at 2:38 P.M. 

******** 

Item No. 14 — Regarding final determination of Transit Impact 
Development Fee for 990 Kearny Street. 

Mr. Thomas Jordan, Director of Special Services, stated that the 
grounds for this appeal concern the right to submit a revised square 
footage form, the definition and interpretation of what are the 
common areas, and the apportionment formula for allocating the 
common areas subject to the fee. 

Ms. Deborah M. Lauter, attorney for the property, took exception to 
including 128 square feet of space occupied by an elevator from the 
underground parking area to the street level, as well as the 
janitorial closets, restrooms, elevators and stairwells. In 
addition, she challenged the exclusion of the parking area in 
computing the portion of the project that is office use for 
determining the common area assessment. 

On motion of Commissioner Flynn, seconded by Commissioner Hsieh, 
this matter was continued to February 14, 1984.

Item 8(d) — Regarding bid call for Hetch Hetchy Contract No. 
675, Bryant Overhead Line Building Improvements. 

Commissioner Flynn requested that this matter be continued 
until the building plans can be reviewed for security. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0048 — Awarding Hetch Hetchy Contract No. 
719, Moccasin Low Head Power Plant, Construction of 13.8 KV 
Pole Line and Related Work. 

Mr. Stan Smith of the San Francisco Building Trades Council 
protested the award of this contract to Overhead Electric 
Company because he said that the company is not signatory to a 
recognized apprenticeship program by the State of California, 
Division of Apprenticeship Standards. He requested that the 
Commission either allow the company time to become signatory or 
award the contract to the next eligible bidder. 

Mr. McMorris Dow, Utilities General Counsel, advised the 
Commission that if it were true that the company is not 
signatory to an apprenticeship agreement, it is a matter of the 
Commission's discretion to either award the contract to them or 
reject their bid. 

Mr. Leo Jed, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, PUC, 
stated that staff started investigation of this matter as a 
result of the protest received this morning. So far they have 
found that Overhead Electric Company is signatory to an 
approved program for inside line work. This contract is for 
outside line work. 

On motion of Commissioner Flynn, seconded by Commissioner 
Sanger, the resolution was amended to award the contract to 
Overhead Electric Company, subject to their becoming signatory 
to the appropriate apprenticeship programs. In the event 
Overhead Electric Company does not meet the aforementioned 
condition, the contract would be awarded to the lowest 
responsive bidder meeting the condition. 

******** 

Item No. 10 — Consideration of a procedure whereby Commission 
interpretations of the Transit Impact Development Fee shall be 
maintained; and consideration of Interpretative Guideline Mos. 
1 and 2 . 

Commissioner Sanger requested inclusion of the Building Code's 
definition of floor area as a footnote to Interpretative 
Guideline No. 1. 

Mr. Howard Wexler, attorney representing Savoy Corporation, 
stated that the purpose of the ordinance is to charge a fee for 
new developments in the downtown area which are related 
directly to the incremental financial burden upon the Municipal 
Railway. He said that since parking is not a principal use, 
then it must be ancillary to office use. He asked how parkinq 
differed from other ancillary uses so far as application of the 
fee was concerned. He suggested clearly excluding parking from 
the fee. 



84-024 



President Lenvin said that such an exclusion would require 
amendment of the Transit Impact Development Fee Regulations. 

Mr. Wexler questioned the use of the Building Code to determine 
gross square footage for calculating the fee as opposed to 
using occupied floor area. 

Commissioner Sanger requested an executive session to continue 
discussion of this matter since there is litigation pending. 

Mr. Wexler agreed to continue the appeal of the Savoy 
Corporation on 990 Kearny Street until the litigation is 
completed . 

Consideration of the Interpretative Guidelines and the Savoy 
Corporation appeal were continued to the call of the Chair. 



******** 



Item No. 12 -- Report of the San Francisco Paratransit 
Coordinating Council. 

Mr. Jerry Peters, Vice Chairman, Paratransit Coordinating 
Council, read a prepared statement concerning the quality and 
quantity of paratransit services funded by the Commission. He 
said that the service had vastly improved; nonetheless, the 
paratransit broker currently has a waiting list of 1,091 
persons who are certified paratransit dependent for the taxi 
program. He said that it would be easy to request an 
additional $470,000 to take care of the existing demonstrated 
need for paratransit services. Such an increase would be 72% 
over this fiscal year's funding. He mentioned other steps 
which could be taken or are being taken to meet the need for 
paratransit services. Although it is difficult to guage the 
effect of the non-funding measures, he requested that the 
Commission authorize the expenditure of an additional $300,000 
for fiscal year 1984-85 for paratransit services. 

Ms. Sharon George, representing the Mayor's Council on 
Disability Concerns, expressed appreciation for the 
improvements that have been made in paratransit service. She 
supported the request for an additional $300,000 to handle 
those who are already certified for service. 

Ms. MaryLou Goeke, Associate Director of Catholic Social 
Services and President of the Coalition of Agencies Serving the 
Elderly, urged the Commission to increase paratransit 
services. She pointed out that there are 11,000 "frail 
elderly" in San Francisco to whom transportation services are 
critical. She identified the "frail elderly" as being 
generally over 75 years of age, with two or more debilitating 
health conditions which cause frequent hospitalization and on a 
limited income. 

Commissioner Sanger inquired as to the opportunity for 
achieving economies of scale by combining various private van 
services in the City. Ms. Goeke replied that the paratransit 
broker was approached by several agencies wanting to purchase 
services. The broker decided it would not be feasible to enter 
into such a contract. 



84-025 



Mr. Tom Jordan, Director of Special Services, said that these 
agencies joined together and obtained private funding for 
purchasing vans with the condition that the agencies establish 
a separate paratransit service. The agencies are now looking 
at where down the line the two systems might be integrated. 

President Lenvin expressed concern about vehicle utilization 
throughout the day. She said that coordination is critical to 
see that for the dollars spent all the equipment is used to its 
maximum. Another area she cited as needing coordination is the 
escort program funded by the Police Department which uses taxi 
script. She said that the taxi script portion of the program 
should be funneled through the paratransit broker. So far, 
coordination between agencies has been extremely difficult. 

Commissioner Sanger said that he would be extremely reluctant 
for this Commission to provide funding support to independent 
operations. If we are to achieve economies through 
coordination, it will be essential to have one brokerage and 
one operation in order to obtain full utilization of equipment 
and personnel. He said that there should be the potential to 
bargain for greater discounts on taxi script as we increase the 
demand for taxi service. 

President Lenvin thanked the staff and the Paratransit Transit 
Coordinating Council for their report.

********** 

PUBLIC HEARING 

To consider approving budget proposals for Fiscal Year 1984-85 for 
all departments and bureaus under the jurisdication of the Public 
Utilities Commission. 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, 
presented the budget proposals using an overhead projector. 

PUC Bureaus 

Mr. Nothenberg characterized the proposed increase to the budget as 
being either adjustments to this year's base budget, annualization 
of programs which began in the current year or new requests. He 
said that the proposed budget for the bureaus in 1984-85 is $24.1 
million, without salary standardization, compared to &19.7 million 
this year. He pointed out that there will be a reallocation of the 
bureaus' costs between the operating departments due to findings 
related to the water rate settlement. 

Regarding annualization of costs related to cable car fare 
collections and printing of tickets, the budget increase was 
approved with the understanding that staff would look into 



contracting the fare collection function and would reduce the 
request for ticket printing when a revised estimate was availab 



Le 



84-028 



Commissioner McCrea was excused at 3:15 P.M. 

President Lenvin asked for public comments. There were none. 

On motion of Commissioner Flynn, seconded by Commissioner Sanger, 
the budget for the bureaus was adopted. 

Water Department 

Commissioner Sanger summarized the budget as being a prediction of 
Water Department revenues and expenditures on the assumption that 
there will be a settlement of the water rate case, generally in line 
with what the Commission has preliminarily agreed to with our 
attorneys, subject to the approval of the Board of Supervisors. 

President Lenvin asked staff to explore the possibility of 
increasing the amount received from the Department of Public Works 
for billing and collection of the sewer service charge. 

Commissioner Flynn complimented the Water Department for meeting all 
its goals and completing its maintenance and inspection activities 
on schedule. 

President Lenvin asked for public comments. There were none. 

On motion of Commissioner Sanger, seconded by Commissioner Flynn, 
the Water Department budget was adopted. 

Hetch Hetchy Water and Power 

Commissioner Sanger questioned the desirability of including a 
weather modification program in the budget. Mr. Dean Coffey, 
General Manager of Hetch Hetchy Water and Power, replied that if 
there is a drought year, we need to have plans in place. 
Commissioner Sanger asked that the description be rewritten to show 
that the funds will be used to develop an emergency backup weather 
modification program, subject to an emergency appropriation at a 
future date. 

President Lenvin opened the meeting for public comments. There were 
none . 

On motion of Commissioner Flynn, seconded by Commissioner Sanger the 
budget was adopted. 

Bureau of Light, Heat and Power 

There were no comments by the Commission or the public on this 
budget . 

On motion of Commissioner Sanger, seconded by Commissioner Flynn, 
the budget was adopted. 

The meeting was recessed at 3:55 P.M. The meeting was reconvened at 
4:05 P.M. 



Municipal Railway 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that the proposed budget assumes that the 
Municipal Railway will continue to receive AB 1107 funds. He said 
that this budget places us below the 28% farebox recovery level 



84-029 



which is the level at which the Metropolitan Transportation 
Commission has some discretion. We are assuming passage of a bill 
by the State Legislature which will allow us to substitute general 
fund monies for farebox revenues. He said that it is expected that 
regional subsidies will increase while federal subsidies will 
decrease resulting in a net reduction of about $1.5 million next 
year . 

Commissioner Sanger questioned the projected decrease in fare 
revenues. Mr. Nothenberg replied that the projections may be on the 
conservative side but they are based upon the estimates of the 
Financial Analysis Section regarding ridership patterns, actual 
collections this fiscal year, diminished by discontinuance of the 
cable car alternative and including putting the cable cars on line 
and encompassing the slow decline in collections over the last few 
years . 

President Lenvin expressed concern about having enough maintenance 
employees at the new Army Street Facility to maintain the lift 
equipment that will be on the new buses. Ms. Ann Branston, Deputy 
General Manager, Equipment Maintenance, Municipal Railway, replied 
that there are positions in the current budget which have not been 
filled. She said that staff plans to use contractual services for 
this function. In addition, Mr. Geissenheimer , General Manager, 
Municipal Railway, said that the manufacturer will be involved 
during the warranty period. Ms. Branston said that for protection 
in this area she would look to an increase of $100,000 in 
contractual services. 

President Lenvin said that she favored such an increase. 
Commissioner Sanger said that he did not see any reason to add to 
the budget. 

President Lenvin asked for public comments. There were none. 

On motion of Commissioner Flynn, seconded by Commissioner Sanger, 
the budget for the Municipal Railway was adopted. 

Commissioner Flynn was excused at 5:02 P.M. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that when the budget is presented to 
the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors, that there be a more 
detailed plan of the requirements for the Army Street Facility. 

President Lenvin commended the staff for the work done in preparing 
the budget.

OLD BUSINESS 

Commissioner McCrea inquired as to the status of the project to 
extend the 33-ASHBURY. He expressed concern about completing 
the project within the time limitations set by the State 
funding. President Lenvin requested a report by the next 
meeting . 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0075 — Approving Hetch Hetchy Capital 
Improvement Program, 1984-85 through 1989-90. 

Commissioner Sanger questioned the need to spend $1.1 million 
to reconstruct portions of the Lower Cherry Diversion Dam 
Aqueduct. Mr. Dean Coffey, General Manager, Hetch Hetchy Water 
and Power, replied that staff conducted an engineering study 
which showed that it would be more feasible to activate this 
aqueduct for standby service than to install pumps. The Forest 
Service has requested that we either use this aqueduct or turn 
it back to the park. Rehabilitation is necessary in order to 
use this as a standby facility. 

******** 

Resolutions No. 84-0081, No. 84-0082, No. 84-0083, and No. 
84-0084 — Regarding construction modifications to the Cable

NEW BUSINESS 

Vehicle Disposition Plan

existing diesel fleet once new vehicles are in service. He said 
that the plan should address the Municipal Railway's ability to meet 
regular needs and special demand situations, such as baseball 
service. 

Short Term Service Changes 

Commissioner McCrea requested a staff recommendation at the next 
Commission meeting regarding short term, i.e., 3-6 months, changes 
in scheduled Municipal Railway service as a means of managing the 
service reductions occasioned by vehicle maintenance problems. 

Personnel Announcements 

President Lenvin introduced and extended a warm welcome to Mr. Paul 
Toliver, Deputy General Manager, Operations, Municipal Railway. 

Muni Metro Operations 

President Lenvin stated that she received a letter from the Mayor 
concerning problems with Muni Metro service. President Lenvin 
requested that a detailed investigation of Muni Metro service levels 
be undertaken and that staff report the findings to the Commission 
within three weeks. 

******** 

Public Hearing - To consider adoption of rates for furnishing Hetch 
Hetchy electric power. 

Mr. Dean Coffey, General Manager, Hetch Hetchy Water and Power, 
presented the rate proposal, which he said was an increase of 
approximately six percent in order to bring the City's rates in line 
with prevailing rates. 



84-045 



President Lenvin opened the public hearing. There being no comments 
by the public, the public hearing was closed. 

Resolution No. 84-0089 was unanimously adopted. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0098 — Debit Modification No. 4 to Municipal 
Railway Contract No. MR-820, Rehabilitation of Cable Car Trackway, 
Mason Street. 

Commissioner Flynn inquired as to the status of the contingency fund 
for the Cable Car Rehabilitation Project. Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, 
General Manager of Public Utilities, replied that the project has 
been reviewed and all foreseeable needs will be funded within the 
confines of the project. He expressed concern about future track 
work that might have to be done. He said that there is a backup 
source of funds that may be used in case work needs to be done of 
which we are now not aware. There is approximately $1 million for 
yet unknown contingencies and we have received $400,000 for 
reconstruction of Victorian Park. He noted that the critical time 
for testing is just beginning. We have every assurance that 
everything is working or will work as it should. Everything that 
has been tested so far, does work as it should. 

Commissioner Flynn asked if there were any items being negotiated by 
the project management team and staff where the dollar amount is not 
known that might affect the $1 million contingency balance. 

Mr. Leo Jed, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, PUC, stated 
that there are additional changes that have not been scoped which 
come to approximately $400,000. He said that would leave an 
available contingency of about $600,000. He explained that all 
contracts have been reviewed and the need for changes identified. 
O'Brien Kreitzberg and Associates, Consultant, came up with an 
estimate for every change, which they believe is on the high side. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0110 — Regarding debit modification No. 24 to 
Municipal Railway Contract MR-828, Rehabilitation of Cable Car 
Trackway, Mason Street. 

Mr. Lynn Pio, Project Manager, used engineering drawings to present 
the proposed design for the Victorian Park Terminus. He pointed out 
the areas to be used for the turntable, layover track, boarding, 
disembarking, a Transit Line Coordinator's shelter, operator 
restrooms and an information kiosk for the Golden Gate National 
Recreation Area. 

Commissioner Sanger expressed concern about constructing a sheltered 
area for Transit Line Coordinators and not constructing one for 
boarding passengers. 

******** 



84-046 



Resolution No. 84-0102 — Authorizing a contract with Koppelman and 
Associates for design, graphics and multi-media services. 

Commissioner McCrea asked to see the work program which this 
contract is intended to support. Commissioner McCrea amended the 
resolution by adding "Resolved, That this Commission does not 
authorize expenditures under this resolution without approval of a 
specific work program." 

******* 

Resolution No. 84-0106 — Approving a professional services contract 
with Elias Girma for Transit Capital Project Planning. 

Commissioner Flynn pointed out that in the draft agreement, the 
article titled "Insurance and Liability" did not contain the 
insurance requirements. Commissioner Sanger moved approval of the 
resolution with the assumption that restoration will be made in the 
contract of the provision for public liability.

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Highway Patrol Inspection 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
that the recent inspection of the diesel fleet by the State Highway 
Patrol was quite favorable. In addition, he said that missed runs 
are down significantly, and at the same time road calls are down. 

Extension of CalTrain 

Mr. Burch Bachtold, District IV Director, Department of 
Transportation, State of California, described the plan to extend 
the peninsula rail service from 4th and Townsend Streets to downtown 
San Francisco, to a new underground terminal in the vicinity of the 
existing Transbay Terminal. He said that if CalTrain could double 
its ridership during the peak period, people could be delivered into 
San Francisco at a rate which would be equivalent to an 
unconstructed freeway. Studies show that the single most important 
thing to increase ridership is to provide an uninterrupted ride into 
the downtown area. If service is extended to the proposed terminal 
more than 80 percent of the riders will be within walking distance 
of their destination. 

In response to questions by the Commission, Mr. Bachtold said that 
the cost of the project is $300 million, which is a fraction of what 
it would cost to build another north/south freeway between San 
Francisco and San Jose. He estimated that the project could be 
completed in 5 to 7 years. 

Cable Car Startup 

Mr. Harold Geissenheimer , General Manager, Municipal Railway, 
reported that a California line cable car will be towed over the 
track and the installation of cable will begin this weekend. 
Operator training will begin the third week of April. Limited 
service starting on the California line will begin June 1, 1984 on a 
10-minute headway from 6:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. The interim 
alternative service will end June 19, 1983. On June 20, 1984 the 
system will be shut down for final inspection. June 21, 1984 will 
be the official opening of the complete system. During the test 
period passengers will be allowed to ride with payment of fare. 



84-055 



President Lenvin said that the fact that the cable car project is 
proceeding on time is a tribute to the incredible effort and work 
performed by the contractors and staff.

Item No. 9 -- Status report on the Bayshore Corridor Study 

Mr. Douglas Wright, Director of Planning and Development, stated 
that the purpose of the study is to identify transit needs in the 
corridor, to plan for the Southern Pacific Mission Bay Development 
and to better understand the extension of Muni Metro to 4th and 
Townsend Streets. 

Mr. Bob Harrison, consultant, defined the corridor with the use of 
maps, as bordered by Townsend Street on the north side, the City 
line on the south, and from the freeway and Visitacion Valley on the 
west to the bay. He said that the study looked at future transit 
alternatives based upon the employment and housing emphases in the 
area -- Mission Bay to the north and the Candlestick site and 
Executive Park to the south. Four levels of transit service were 
identified: 1) existing Muni and Caltrain servicer 2) extension of 
Muni Metro using existing street right-of-way; 3) extension of Muni 
Metro on a separate right-of-way, parallel to Caltrain; and 4) 
regional rapid transit which would replace Caltrain service. 

Mr. Dean Macris, Director of City Planning, stated that there are 
many unknowns at this time. He cited the Mission Bay Project. As 
proposed, he said, that the split of 58,000 jobs to 7,500 housing 
units, is unworkable. He said, that the City is looking for a 
surplus of housing in the Mission Bay Project. Regarding a new 
stadium, which will pose a transit requirement, he said, that China 
Basis is a potential area. However, if a new stadium is built, the 
question remains what happens to the Candlestick Park area. 

No action was taken on this item. 



Item No. 12 — Regarding a proposed roadway connection between 
Crestview Drive, San Carlos and Interstate 280. 

Mr. Warren H. Shafer, City Manager, City of San Carlos, stated that 
the City of San Carlos will use its Police and Fire Departments for 
patrol and fire protection of the Vista Point area. Regarding the 
Commission's earlier concern about the movement of wild life, Mr. 
Shafer said, that the State Fish and Game has indicated that a 
tunnel under the freeway would be an adequate mitigation measure. 



84-065 



Finally he said that the impact of allowing this access is a 
reduction of 2.8 million miles driven per year. By estimating 15 
miles per gallon of fuel, this would be a savings of 190,000 gallons 
of fuel per year. 

Mr. Bob Sands, Director of Public Works, San Mateo County and Mayor 
Victor Stoltz of the City of San Carlos, also spoke in favor of the 
proposed roadway. 

Commissioner Sanger pointed out that the draft environmental impact 
report did not indicate the traffic impact on the access road. He 
said that the proposed roadway appears to be one lane in each 
direction. Traffic is estimated to be 3,000 vehicles per day. That 
would probably be 300-400 vehicles in the peak hour, peak direction, 
which would be the capacity of the roadway. 

Commissioner Sanger said that under the California Environmental 
Quality Act the Commission cannot act on this matter until either a 
certified environmental impact report or a certified negative 
declaration is received. This matter was continued for compliance 
with CEQA. 

******** 



Commissioner Flynn was excused at 3:00 P.M. 

Resolution No. 84-0158 — Approving modifications to Transit 
Advertising Agreement with Winston Network Company. 

Commissioner Sanger asked who would pay the cost of the proposed 
change in format. Mr. Paul Winston, of Winston Network Company, 
replied that his company planned to reframe all vehicles and under 
the contract all frames will become the property of the Municipal 
Railway. His company would pay for all changes with regard to 
framing, removing all frames, and repairing holes. With regard to 
the cost for moving the logo, he said, that if it is decal , his 
company would be willing to pay for the expense in materials. 

Commissioner Sanger said that he is delighted to see that there will 
be an advertising panel behind the driver. He said that he wanted 
the City to have the ability to preempt that space for announcements 

On motion of Commissioner McCrea, seconded by Commissioner Sanger, 
Resolution No. 84-0158 was adopted, approving modifications to the 
Transit Advertising Agreement, and reserving the right to utilize 
twenty percent of the advertising space located behind the driver 
upon 90 days notice.

RESOLUTION 
NO. 

On motion of Sanger, seconded by Flynn, the following 
resolution was adopted: 

84-0168 MR Authorizing the General Manager of Public Utilities 
to execute an agreement with the California 
Department of Transportation for the operation of 
shuttle bus service from 4th and Townsend Streets to 
Downtown, and to lease buses as needed for this 
service . 

Vote: Ayes - Lenvin, Sanger, Flynn 
****** 

Resolution No. 84-0168 -- Authorizing an agreement with CalTrans to 
provide shuttle bus service. 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, said 
that the matter before the Commission is authorization of a contract 
with the State Department of Transportation (CalTrans) for the 
operation of shuttle bus service from 4th and Townsend Streets to 
Downtown, and authorization to lease the required buses for 60 
days. He said that the long-term commitment is dependent upon a 
State Transit Assistance grant through the Metropolitan 
Transportation Commission and a commitment from the Metropolitan 
Transportation Commission for continuation of this program. 

Mr. Nothenberg explained that CalTrans will pay the City its cost of 
maintenance and operation of the buses, and also the value of the 
stamped Caltrain ticket which will be accepted on the entire 
Municipal Railway system. The value to the City of the stamped 
Caltrain ticket is equal to the cost of the Fast Pass, i.e., $24.00 
per month. 

Mr. Burch Bachtold, District IV Director, Department of 
Transportation, State of California, said that the major complaints 
about the Caltrain service is the uncertainty of transfer at 4th and 
Townsend Streets. He said that the purpose of this proposal is to 
improve the quality and level of service and hopefully increase 
Caltrain ridership. While this benefits the Caltrain rider, it also 
relieves pressure on the Municipal Railway. CalTrans will market 
the service along with the sale of commuter tickets. 



84-068 



Commissioner Sanger questioned inclusion of the transfer arrangement 
in the contract, and said that it should be a separate agreement. 
Mr. Nothenberg explained that it is part of the proposed contract 
because of the impending May 1, 1984 startup date. The transfer 
arrangements will be separated in the long-term contract. 

Commissioner Sanger expressed concern about obligating the Municipal 
Railway to provide an increased level of service based upon a 
contract. He requested that the discontinuance of service be 
calendared for the next Commission meeting and forwarded to the 
Board of Supervisors.

Item No. 9 -- Requesting the Board of Supervisors' endorsement of 
the Advertising Transit Shelter Contract and amendment to the City 
Planning and City Police Codes. 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, stated 
that the Board of Supervisors has approved a resolution asking this 
Commission to undertake a transit shelter program. The Board 
requested that the contract be submitted to them for approval before 
it is finalized. The resolution before the Commission today would 



84-077 



authorize transmittal of the proposed contract to the Board of 
Supervisors before the Request for Proposals (RFP) is circulated and 
also transmittal of the necessary changes to the City Planning and 
Police Codes. 

Commissioner Sanger expressed concern that the competition in 
bidding would focus on the dollar amount to be returned to the City, 
when his primary interests are the design, level of maintenance, and 
the number and locations of the shelters. Mr. Nothenberg replied, 
that he had included a provision to share in any windfall profits of 
the contractor. Commissioner Sanger suggested that a percentage or 
minimum fee be established in the RFP and also that the number of 
shelters over a minimum be included as part of the selection 
criteria. He inquired about the potential for small businesses to 
advertise on the shelters. 

Commissioner Flynn requested a description of the selection process 
before the Commission approves the item for submission to the Board 
of Supervisors. 

This item was continued for redrafting of the RFP to address the 
Commission's concerns and for development of the evaluation and 
selection process.

Introduction 

Vice President Sanger presided in the absence of the President. 

He introduced Commissioner Joseph F. Barletta and welcomed him to 
his first meeting since his appointment on April 26, 1984. 

******** 

Communications 

President Sanger inquired about the response to a letter from Mr. 
Bruce Marshall of the San Francisco Muni Coalition regarding headway- 
problems on the N-Judah line. Mr. Harold Geissenheimer , General 
Manager, Municipal Railway, replied that he had discussed the 
service with Mr. Marshall. He said that the general problem is that 
more service is needed on the line after 6:00 P.M. When a delay 
occurs between 4:00 and 5:00 P.M., there needs to be an adjustment 
in the after 6:00 P.M. service. 

******** 

Report of the General Manager 
Assembly Bill 2337 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
that AB 2337, which was introduced by Assembly Speaker Willie Brown 
at our request, passed both Houses of the Legislature and has been 
submitted to the Governor for signature. This bill would allow San 
Francisco to substitute an increased level of general fund support, 
in lieu of a fare increase and still retain eligibility for AB 1107 
funds. He said that the Governor is expected to sign the bill. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0217 - Modifying contract with Parsons 
Brinckerhoff Quade and Douglas to include data collection of motor 
coach lines 80X and 81X. 

Commissioner Flynn inquired about the allegation that the employees 
of this firm are being paid less than an appropriate wage. Mr. 
Nothenberg replied that he would follow through regarding the 
allegation. He said that this modification to expand the scope of 
work is needed so that data will be available to justify expenditure 
of the grant which is funding the 80X and 81X lines. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0218 - Authorizing a contract with Lift-U Inc. for 
training and repair services for the Lift-U wheelchair lifts. 

President Sanger requested that records be maintained on the number 
of times wheelchair lifts are used at the request of passengers. 

******** 
Announcement 

President Sanger announced that the Commission met in executive 
session prior to this meeting and adopted Resolution No. 84-0232, 
authorizing the City Attorney to settle a Water Department lawsuit.

Announcements 

President Lenvin announced that this would be Commissioner McCrea ' s 
last meeting because he was resigning from the Commission. She said 
that Commissioner McCrea has been one of the most hardworking 
members of the Commission and his thoughts and insight would be 
missed . 

Commission McCrea said that it was with a tremendous amount of 
regret that he was forced to resign due to the demands of his 
business. He said that he had enjoyed his tenure on the Commission 
and the association with fellow Commissioners. 

******** 

Introduction of New Business 

President Lenvin announced that the Commission approved settlement 
of a claim against the Municipal Railway, Resolution No. 84-0234, in 
executive session immediately prior to this meeting. 

******** 



B4-095 



Commissioner Sanger requested a summary of the planned operating 
schedule for the cable car system following the opening and of any 
changes in procedures in order to maintain headways. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0253 - Requesting a transfer of funds to Hetch 
Hetchy Materials and Supplies. 

Commissioner Sanger requested an evaluation of the various types of 
overhead systems which have been installed with recommendations for 
replacement of those systems that are not meeting the department's 
needs . 

******** 

Presentation by Metcalf & Eddy Engineers, consultant on the San 
Francisco water system. 

Ms. Olivia Chin, Project Manager for Metcalf & Eddy Engineers, 
outlined the findings contained in their report and said that the 
San Francisco Water Department is meeting all existing water quality 
standards and regulations, She reported that the Environmental 
Protection Agency is looking at more stringent requirements for the 
future. With that in mind, she said that the City should study how 
it would go about implementing stricter standards, when and if, they 
become required. 

The Commission asked the consulting team for clarification of 
several of the technical points made in the report. In conclusion, 
Commissioner McCrea asked if it is Metcalf & Eddy's recommendation 
that the City begin filtration of Hetch Hetchy water now. Ms. Chin 
replied "no". She added that in light of the wind blowing on 
Capitol Hill, more stringent requirements might be coming in 5 to 10 
years. The City should undertake a study to determine what process 
would be best to treat Hetch Hetchy water so that the City is ready 
to respond. 

******** 

Item No. 10 — Hearing on the Municipal Railway Short-Range Transit 
Plan 1984-1989. 

Mr. Douglas Wright, Director of Planning and Development, said that 
the Municipal Railway Short-Range Transit Plan was calendared today 
to obtain public comments; then it would be scheduled for adoption 
at one of the June meetings and transmitted to the Metropolitan 
Transportation Commission and the Urban Mass Transportation 
Administration. 

Ms. Louise Stoll, Director of Budgets and Grants, explained the 
Capital Improvement Program process, and said that the CIP is an 
integral part of the Short-Range Transit Plan. 

Commissioner Sanger questioned the objectives listed under Goal 1. 
He said that it was his understanding that the objective is to 
increase capacity in accordance with peak demands, not to increase 
service overall. Mr. Straus replied that the intent had been to 
define an average load factor over the peak period rather than an 
average for the day. Commissioner Sanger requested that the 
statement be changed so that our objective is to meet rising peak 
period demands. 



84-096 



In response to questions regarding interpretation of the 
Commission's policy on load factor, Commissioner McCrea restated the 
Commission's policy that the quarter hour should not exceed 1.5 load 
factor . 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, noted that 
the plan shows an increase in service hours which is greater than 
the increase in vehicle miles which he interpreted as reinforcement 
for transit preferential measures. He said that the anticipated 
additional revenues from cable car operations may not materialize if 
there are long headways and erratic service similar to what he said 
existed prior to the shutdown. 

Ms. Marquerite Warren expressed concern about service on the 71 - 
Haight/Nor iega and its conversion to trolley operation. 

Commissioner McCrea stated that the Commission's policy is that 
transfers shall be valid for 1 1/2 hours. He requested 
clarification in the text and directed staff to follow through at 
the supervisory level. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0254 — Regarding the Advertising Transit Shelter 
Program. 

Commissioner Sanger requested amendment of the Request For Proposals 
(RFP) to indicate the quanity of shelters the contractor will 
provide and to include R-C and R-M districts and the downtown area. 

In response to questions by Commissioner Flynn, Mr. Mark Weisman, 
Transit Planner, stated that a proposer would have to meet the 
affirmative action, minority business enterprise (MBE) and women 
business enterprise (WBE) requirements before the proposal would be 
considered in the competition.

******** 

Public Hearing — To consider adoption of a revised Schedule of 
Rates to be charged by the San Francisco Water Department for water 
service in San Francisco and suburban areas. 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, said 
that the proposed rates are in keeping with the decision made last 
year to draw down the surplus in the Water Department's 
unappropriated fund over a period of years. 

Mr. Eugene Kelleher, General Manager and Chief Engineer, San 
Francisco Water Department, explained the impact of the rate 
increase on the surplus with the use of charts. He said that if the 
surplus were used without the proposed 10% rate increase in fiscal 
year 1984-85, a 28.7% increase would be needed in 1985-86, instead 
of the anticipated 9% increase for 1985-86. With the proposed 
increase, the estimated June 30, 1984 unappropriated balance of 
$13.8 million will be decreased to $9.8 million by June 30, 1985. 

President Lenvin opened the public hearing. There were no public 
comments . 

On motion of Commissioner Sanger, seconded by Commissioner Flynn, 
the revised Schedule of Rates was unanimously adopted. 

******** 

President Lenvin announced that the Commission approved in executive 
session prior to today's meeting, a Supplement to the Settlement 
Agreement and Master Water Sales Contract between City and suburban 
resale customers.

******** 
Introductions 

President Lenvin introduced Commissioner Louis J. Giraudo and 
welcomed him as a member of the Commission. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0296 — Authorizing extension of line 19-POLK. 

Mr. Michael Crombach, Transit Planner, said that currently the 
19-POLK operates to the shipyard during peak periods only. He said 
that the community requested all day service to the shipyard. The 
staff recommendation is to extend weekday service to the shipyard 
from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.; and to the Evans Street terminal from 
6:00 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. on weekdays and at all times on weekends, for 
an addition of 70 hours of service per week. He said that the 
community's request would add 110 hours of service per week. 
Commissioner Giraudo asked what the cost of the service would be. 
Mr. Harold Geissenheimer , General Manager, Municipal Railway, 
replied $130,000 a year for 70 hours of service per week and over 
$200,000 for 110 hours. Commissioner Flynn suggested operating full 
service on the extended route for a six-month trial period. 

The following persons spoke in favor of extending the bus line to 
the shipyard at all hours: 

Ms. Susan Willis, 991 Innes Street 

Ms. Katie Coleman, 740 Innes Street 

Mr. Gary Howerton, 565 Jerrold Avenue , representing 

AAA Shipyard and its 84 tenants with 1000 employees 
Ms. Dorothy Simpson, 50 Harbor Road

84-110 



Commissioner Flynn moved to relocate the terminal of the 19-POLK 
line from its present location to a terminal inside the gates of the 
shipyard, providing full service at all hours with the same headways 
on a six-month trial basis. Commissioner Giraudo seconded. 
Resolution No. 84-0296 was unanimously adopted. 

******** 

Item No. 15 -- Regarding rerouting line 18-46th AVENUE to provide 
service from Sloat Boulevard to Stonestown Shopping Center. 

Mr. Peter Straus, Director of Transit Planning, Municipal Railway, 
described the existing and proposed routes with the aid of a map. 
He said that the staff proposal is to reroute every other bus from 
9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., weekdays, along Sloat Boulevard, Junipero 
Serra Boulevard, Eucalyptus Drive and into Stonestown via 20th 
Avenue, Winston Drive and 19th Avenue to a terminal at Buckingham 
Way. The return trip would follow the existing route, looping 
around Lake Merced. The alternate bus, which had followed the 
existing route on its southbound trip, would return via the new 
Sloat Boulevard route. Existing 15 minute service would become 30 
minute service on the Lake Merced portion of the route. He said 
that additional funds would be required. 

Mr. Straus described other alternatives. Alternative 2 would reduce 
headways to 10 minutes on the line, resulting in 20 minute headways 
on each leg, at a cost of 106 additional service hours per week. 
Alternative 3 would continue present service on the 18-46th AVENUE 
and establish a new community service line operating on 30 minute 
headways, at a cost of 83 service hours per week. 

Mr. Darrell Inaba, representing the Crestlake Property Owners 
Association, supported the staff proposal with the addition of 
continuing service on Sloat Boulevard through the peak period and on 
weekends and adding the buses that were suggested for community 
service to the 18 line to shorten the headway. 

The following persons spoke in favor of the staff proposal: 

Ms. Elsie Spoler, 27 Escondido 

Mr. Vernon W. Anderson, 300 Crestlake Drive 

Ms. Marion McBride, 2449 Great Highway 

Mr. Jay Katz, representing the Recreation Center for the 
Handicapped, opposed the cut in service to the center which would 
result from the staff proposal. He said that the center served 
approximately 1000 people a month, and an average of 279 persons per 
week use the bus to and from the center. 

Ms. Ida May Brewster, representing the Stonestown Merchants, said 
that in 1982 Stonestown lost two major supply lines when bus service 
was rerouted. Since that time 12 stores have closed. She spoke in 
favor of more bus service into the shopping center. 

Mr. William Erlich, Chairman of the Transportation Committee of Lake 
Merced Hill, opposed the staff proposal and any cut in service 
around Lake Merced. 

An unidentified speaker spoke in favor of restoring the 
17-PARKMERCED along Junipero Serra Boulevard. 



84-111 



Commissioner Flynn moved, Commissioner Barletta seconded, to 
continue this matter to the meeting of July 31, 1984. The motion 
passed unanimously. 

******** 

Item No. 12 — Consideration of adoption of the Municipal Railway 
Short-Range Transit Plan 1984-1989. 

On motion of Commissioner Flynn, seconded by Commissioner Giraudo,

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0295 — Authorizing rerouting line 5-FULTON to 
operate eastbound on McAllister Street between Hyde and Market 
Streets. 

Mr. Straus described the proposal with the aid of maps to operate

from Hyde to Market Street. 

The following persons spoke in favor of the proposal: 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow 
Mr. Bernard Averbusch, Executive Director of the Market 

Street Project 
Mr. Lawrence Martin, International Representative, 

Transport Workers Union. 

Resolution No. 84-0295 was adopted.

Introduction of Old Business 

Edgewood Park 

Commissioner Sanger requested circulation to the Commissioners of 
the supplement to the draft environmental impact report on the 
proposed Edgewood Park golf course. 

5 8 -Leavenworth 

Commissioner Sanger expressed concern regarding hearings scheduled 
by the Municipal Railway staff on possible continuation of cable car 
substitute service on line 58-Leavenworth after restoration of cable 
car service. He said that he was particularly concerned about any 
implied commitment of extension of service for which there is no 
funding, and also, the diversion of attention from operating the 
cable car system on improved schedule and service standards above 
that which existed prior to closing of the system. 

Commissioner Flynn said, that as President at the time substitute 
service was approved, it was the sense of the Commission and the 
Mayor that the service was only temporary. He referred to letters 
written to the public in 1982 which stated that policy. 

******** 



Introduction of New Business 

Review of Trolley Lines 

Commissioner Sanger suggested that the Bureau of Engineering and 
Construction Management consider having a team of outside engineers 
and architects review the trolley overhead system with a view toward 
reducing the visual impact of the wires and poles and with the 
intent of setting forth a program that can be built into the Capital 
Improvement Program. 

******** 

Public Hearing — To consider adoption of a uniform schedule of 
administrative fees and criteria for issuance, renewal and 
replacement of the Bay Region Transit Discount Card. 

Mr. Thomas Jordan, Director of Special Projects, gave an overview of 
the program which has been in place for five years. He said that 
the proposed modifications to the program are needed to restore the 
program's integrity. Over the years a number of inconsistencies 
have arisen among the Bay Area transit operators. He said that he 
had received legal advice to the effect that everyone in the program 
must be treated equally whether the disability is physical or 
emotional. Under the present program a doctor must certify physical 
disabilities. In the emotional area, various social service 
agencies, funded by federal or state government, who had access to 
the medical records of an individual were allowed to certify the 
disability. 



84-118 



The proposed criteria would require both physical and emotional 
disabilities to be certified by a physician licensed to diagnose 
that particular disability. If the primary disability is substance 
abuse the individual would not qualify for the program. All 
certifications would be valid for a maximum of three years. The 
program would accept certification by the Veterans Administration of 
disabilities of 50% or more as eligible for the program. 
Administrative costs of the program currently are $7.00 per 
applicant. It is proposed that the applicant pay a fee of $2.00 to 
cover part of the cost for the initial card; $2.00 plus a 14-day 
waiting period for the first replacement or $5.00 for immediate 
replacement; and $5.00 plus a 30-day waiting period for all 
subsequent replacement cards. In addition, the plan calls for 
changing the name of the program to the Regional Transit Connection. 

Commissioner Sanger pointed out that since this is a regional 
program the Commission's adoption and the Board of Supervisor's 
approval should be contingent upon adoption by the other members of 
the Regional Transit Association (RTA). 

President Lenvin opened the meeting for public comments. 

Mr. James Lee, Chairperson 1983, RTA Accessibility Committee, 
described the coordinated effort and technical input that went into 
developing the proposed program. 

Ms. Arlene Chew Wong, Chairperson, Municipal Railway Elderly & 
Handicapped Advisory Committee, supported the proposed program and 
expressed concern about abuse of the existing program. 

Mr. Lucky Lee, representing the Chinatown/Northbeach Community Care, 

said that any physician registered with the California Medical Board 

should be able to sign applications, and that the fee for lost cards 
was too high. 

Lt . Samuel N. Southard of the Salvation Army, said that 75% of their 
clients use the discount card. Regarding certification of clients, 
he said, that he would rather that it be kept as it is now. The 
Salvation Army's certifying staff have bachelor of arts degrees in 
social work. Regarding eligibility, he said, that some of the 
clients have alcohol abuse as a secondary problem which may be an 
outcome of other problems. They should not be rejected because of 
alcohol abuse. He said that if the Salvation Army were to bring in 
a psychologist to certify their current clients it would cost about 
$6,000.00. 

Mr. Thomas West, representing the Association for Retarded Citizens, 
said that the proposal to limit certification to licensed physicians 
is discriminatory to other licensed professionals such as 
psychologists and clinical social workers. 

Mr. Clifford Berg, Assistant Coordinator of Continuing Care, 
Community Mental Health, said that imposing a fee for card 
replacement and a 30-day waiting period would deprive their clients 
from needed care. 

Mr. Walter O'Donnell pointed out that doctors in federal facilities, 
such as Fort Miley, are not licensed by the State of California. 

Mr. Richard Hasher, a client of the Central City Day Treatment 
Program, suggested a temporary identification card to use during the 
waiting period. The fee schedule, he said, is reasonable. 



84-119 



Ms. Elaine Mars, Director, Social Skills Day Treatment Program, said 
that the symptoms that make a person eligible for the discount card, 
such as, confusion or disorientation, might cause the person to lose 
their cards. She opposed the fees and the waiting period. 

Mr. Neil Broudy, Director, Central City Day Treatment Program, 
expressed concern about limiting certification to those licensed to 
diagnose the disability. He favored allowing certain clinical staff 
to certify clients. 

Mr. Leroy Finch said that doctors should register with the Municipal 
Railway. 

Mrs. Erma Rim, a member of the State Council on Developmental 
Disabilities, said that many disturbed persons are not responsible 
for themselves. She opposed the $5.00 replacement fee and limiting 
the certification authority. 

The public hearing was closed. 

Commissioner Flynn requested modification of the program to allow 
immediate issuance of replacement cards, without a waiting period, 
for whatever the fee is to be. 

Commissioner Giraudo requested that the committee of transit 
operators which is designing the program consider broadening the 
classifications of mental health professional able to certify 
clients . 

President Lenvin suggested a $2.00 replacement fee for first time 
replacement . 

This matter was continued until a consensus is reached among the 
participating transit operators.

price of the Municipal Railway Adult Monthly Fast Pass. 

Mr. Nothenberg said that the proposed suspension of $4.00 is in 
response to a request from the Mayor and in accordance with the 
budgetary plan for the City for this year. The resolution is drawn 
in a way that would allow reinst i tut ion of the amount in the event 
Jarvis II passes. Otherwise, the suspension would expire August 31, 
1985. 



84-129 



President Lenvin asked what effect the reduction would have upon the 
coordinated fare structure. Mr. Nothenberg replied, that the 
Metropolitan Transportation Commission staff believes that it will 
be acceptable on a suspension basis and staff will recommend it to 
their Commission. The Mayor's budget message made it clear that the 
proposal is contingent upon it being accomplished within the 
coordinated fare structure. 

President Lenvin opened the meeting for public comments. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, supported the 
proposed reduction and said that they hope it becomes permanent. 

Mr. Bruce Marshall, representing the Muni Coalition, urged 
adoption. He suggested an expansion of service now that there is a 
relaxation of AB1107 requirements. 

Ms. Joyce Hall, representing the Visitacion Valley Community, 
supported the reduction. 

Commissioner Sanger moved and Commissioner Barletta seconded the 
suspension of $4.00 of the $24.00 price of the Adult Fast Pass, with 
an amendment to authorize a supplemental appropriation for the 
amount of the increased payment to BART in accordance with the 
MUNI/BART joint pass agreement. Resolution No. 84-0331 was 
unanimously adopted. 

******** 

Item No. 18 — Requesting the Board of Supervisors to place issuance 
of water revenue bonds for $92 million for water treatment plants at 
San Andreas and Crystal Springs on the November, 1984 ballot. 

Mr. Nothenberg outlined the issues as: whether the filter plants are 
needed; the timing of a ballot measure; the value of the projects; 
and the method of financing. 

Commissioner Sanger spoke in favor of expanding the San Andreas 
treatment plant. He expressed concern about the cost effectiveness 
of providing the Crystal Springs plant compared to other 
alternatives when only 6-7 percent of our supply comes from Crystal 
Springs. He proposed putting an equivalent amount of money to other 
uses, such as, expanding transmission facilities. 

Mr. Eugene Kelleher, General Manager and Chief Engineer, San 
Francisco Water Department, described the existing system. He said 
that prior to 1981 the department had the ability to use Crystal 
Springs without filtration. Due to the concerns about asbestos, 
giardia and turbidity the State Department of Health will not allow 
use of that water without filtration. With the restriction on 
Crystal Springs, there is a need for reserve capacity somewhere in 
the system to handle emergencies. He cited several situations which 
would require use of Crystal Springs water. 

Regarding expansion of transmission facilities, Mr. Kelleher listed 
a series of projects and their estimated costs which would be 
required in order to bring more water to the west side of the bay. 
Completion of the series of projects would take several years and 
considerably more money than a filtration plant at Crystal Springs. 



84-130 



Mr. Nothenberg said that if there is to be a proposition on the 
November, 1984 ballot it must be submitted to the Board of 
Supervisors so that the Board can approve it by August 6, 1984. 

President Lenvin expressed the opinion that given the length of time 
needed to complete various projects to expand transmission 
facilities, she favored the Crystal Springs project. 

On motion of Commissioner Flynn, seconded by Commissioner Sanger, a 
special meeting was scheduled for Tuesday, July 24, 1984, at 2:00 
P.M. for further consideration of this matter. Resolution No. 
84-0360 was unanimously adopted.

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0363 — Requesting the Board of Supervisors to 
place a Water Department bond issue on the November 6, 1984 ballot. 

Mr. Eugene Kelleher, General Manager and Chief Engineer, San 
Francisco Water Department, said that the proposed projects, to 
build a filtration plant at Crystal Springs and to increase the San 
Andreas plant, are the results of two studies by consultants in 1979 
and 1982. The estimated cost is $92 million. The State Department 
of Health Services has advised the department that Crystal Springs 
water should not be used without filtration. He said, that the 
proposed plants are not needed for normal operation but they are 
needed for periods when there is a disruption of service or 
exceptional high volume usage that would require the use of Crystal 
Springs water. In response to questions by President Lenvin, he 
said that during repairs to the San Joaquin pipeline Crystal Springs 
water was used for approximately seven out of ten months. If this 
were to happen again the department could request voluntary 
rationing if the difference in supply and demand was small. If the 
demand were greater than what could be provided by a rationing 
program the department would request permission from the State 
Health Service to use Crystal Springs water and notify our customers 
that we are supplying substandard water. 

Mr. Richard McMillian, Regional Engineer for the Central Coastal 
Region, State Department of Health Services, stated that while at 
times Crystal Springs may meet water standards, it is classified as 
an unfiltered, surface water source. Even though turbidity may fall 
below the acceptable limit it is considered to be a substandard 
supply which requires filtration. In the past the State has allowed 
use of the water on an emergency basis with the understanding that 
the City would provide extra safeguards regarding clorination and 
the handling of the water. Emergencies have occurred over a period 
of time. He said that it is no longer acceptable that the City 
continue to request emergency usage. 



84-133 



Commissioner Sanger said that he feels the time has come for the 
Commission to make a declaration of policy regarding the water 
system and its future. He distributed a draft policy and requested 
that it be calendared for consideration at the next meeting. He 
said that while he is in favor of sending the bond issue to the 
Board of Supervisors and the voters, the Commission should reserve 
its final approval until it adopts a water conservation policy, 
until there is agreement on a water allocation plan and the sharing 
of costs for expansion of the system. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that the wording of the resolution and 
the bond issue not limit the department to only these projects. He 
moved approval of the item increasing the amount to $104 million to 
allow for a reserve and for a discount on the sale of the bonds. 
Commissioner Giraudo seconded. Resolution No. 84-0363 was 
unanimously adopted.

Introduction of New Business 

President Lenvin stated that the Board of Supervisors had passed a 
resolution stating its concern for water quality if the proposed 
Apperson Ridge quarry were put in operation. 

On motion of Commissioner Sanger, seconded by Commissioner Flynn, it 
was agreed that the President would send a letter to the Alameda 
Board of Supervisors expressing the Commission's concerns and asking 
for stricter controls on the project. 

Report of the General Manager 

Commission on Aging 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
that the Commission on Aging will work order paratransit services to 
us in the amount of $308,000.00. He said that on the advice of the 
Utilities General Counsel, he signed a letter agreement with the 
Commission on Aging stating the services to be performed. On the 
next Commission calendar, there will be an item to amend the 
agreement with the paratransit broker to provide 52,000 additional 
trips . 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0378 — Authorizing a contract with Ripley 
Associates for design work on the Market Street F-Line project. 

On motion of Commissioner Giraudo, seconded by Commissioner Flynn, 
Commissioner Sanger was excused from voting on this matter. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0380 — Authorizing discontinuance of line 
58-LEAVENWORTH . 

Mr. Harold Geissenheimer , General Manager, Municipal Railway, said 
that the 58-LEAVENWORTH line was originally put in place in 1982 as 
replacement service during the cable car rehabilitation period. It 
was intended to expire when the cable cars were returned to full 
service. This will be on September 5, 1984. He said that requests 
have been received from people on Pine and Bush Streets and along 
Hyde Street to continue this service. People on Larkin Street 
requested removal of the service as had been promised. Two 
neighborhood meetings were held in response to these requests. 

Mr. Peter Straus, Director of Planning, Municipal Railway, presented 
the staff recommendation, with the aid of maps, to operate a revised 
58 line. He recommended discontinuance of service to Fisherman's 
Wharf, operating the line along Hyde Street rather than Larkin 
Street, using two buses on a 30 minute headway. 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that funds are not available in the budget for 
any continuation of service on this line. If the revised route were 
approved it must be conditioned upon the receipt of additional funds. 

Commissioner Giraudo moved, Commissioner Barletta seconded, to 
remove the 58-LEAVENWORTH from the major portion of Larkin Street. 
The motion was unanimously adopted. 



84-142 



President Lenvin opened the meeting to the public. 

The following persons spoke in opposition to the proposed modified 
58 line: 

Helen Gunther 

Paul Babnick 

David MacKindall 

Ed Baker 

Ethel Taylor 

Victoria Gelvin 

Muriel Bullard (for Mr. & Mrs. Jan Chafee) 

Grace Sevy 

Norman Rolfe 

Edwin Gallier 

Patricia McAteer 

Nancy Lew 

The following persons spoke in favor of the proposed modified 58 
line: 

Clark Allen Cruikshank 
Ignacio Pomillious 
Phyllis Abramsom 
Mary Thoenges 
Helen Heskins 
Vicki Skinner 
Alice Murphy 
Bea Sprinkle 

Commissioner Sanger expressed concern about the location of the 
turnaround, traffic delays at the intersection at Hyde and Lombard 
Streets, the use of diesel buses on Nob Hill and Russian Hill, and 
the cost of service per passenger. 

Commissioner Giraudo stated that the theme throughout the letters 
received and today's testimony seems to be providing service for 
senior citizens and physically handicapped persons. He suggested 
that staff look at less costly alternatives. He said that data is 
not available on full schedule cable car service to say whether it 
is adequate for residents. 

President Lenvin said that the Commission provided transit service 
which filled a need which had not previously been identified. She 
expressed the opinion that there is now a real need for service on 
portion of the route, whether it is served by modifying the 58 line 
or the 27-BRYANT. 

Commissioner Flynn pointed out that delaying action on this item 
would prolong the expense of operating service that is not 
budgeted. He moved to discontinue service on line 58-LEAVENWORTH as 
of September 4, 1984. The motion was seconded by Commissioner 
Barletta. On the question, Commissioners Sanger, Flynn, Barletta 
and Giraudo voted "aye." President Lenvin voted "no." 

President Lenvin requested that staff look at alternatives and 
report back to the Commission.

On motion of Commissioner Flynn, seconded by Commissioner Sanger,

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0389 — Authorizing agreements with Foster 
Engineering and Jordan Associates. 

Commissioner Sanger questioned award of the contract to other than 
the firms rated highest by the selection committee. 

Mr. Nothenberg replied that given the nature of the work, that is as 
needed engineering services, and the fact that there were four 
qualified firms, staff recommends splitting the contract into two 
contracts . 

Commissioner Sanger suggested splitting it into four contracts. 

President Lenvin said that staff was concerned about the degree of 
minority participation in engineering contracts. She said that here 
we have a qualified minority engineering contractor to participate 
in this contract. 

Commissioner Flynn moved to award contracts to Foster Engineering 
and Jordan Associates. Commissioner Barletta seconded. On the 
question, Commissioners Lenvin, Flynn, Barletta and Giraudo voted 
"aye." Commissioner Sanger voted "no."

Report of the General Manager 
Cable Car Incident 

Mr. Harold Geissenheimer , General Manager, Municipal Railway, 
reported that an accident occurred at 4:40 p.m. on Sunday, August 
12, when an automobile collided with a fully-loaded cable car which 
was proceeding uphill on Hyde Street, between Francisco and Bay. As 
a result of the collision, which threw Muni gripman Raymond McCann 
to the floor, the cable car began rolling slowly back downhill out 
of control. Mr. McCann and brakeman Charles Gerstbacher managed to 
regain control of the cable car and stop it. Mr. Geissenheimer 
praised the performance of the two crewmen and emphasized the fact 
that the human factor, and a new, improved emergency brake, averted 
a possible disaster. 



84-151 



Commissioner Sanger said that the crew did a magnificent job and 
prevented a great deal of potential harm from occurring. He stated 
that he was proud of the job the two cable car crewmen had done. 

Crewmen McCann and Gerstbacher and their families were introduced 
and received a hearty round of applause and personal congratulations 
from each Commissioner. 

******** 

Kirkwood Penstock - Hetch Hetchy 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that during routine inspection slippage of 
the Kirkwood penstock was noted. A video tape was shown which had 
details of the area and described the testing work being done by 
consultants and staff to identify the cause of the slippage and to 
determine the appropriate actions to correct the situation and 
prevent further shifting. He said that the video tape would be 
available to the media. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0408 — Establishing the Bureau of Claims and 
Contracts . 

Commissioner Sanger suggested naming the bureau the Bureau of 
Claims, Contracts and Property to give the functions relative to the 
thousands of acres of property owned by the Commission the priority 
they deserve. Mr. Nothenberg assured that the appropriate property 
functions would be performed under the direction of this bureau with 
other staff. However, he said that he would prefer not to have the 
word "property" in the title as it may cause a conflict with the 
City's Department of Real Estate. 

******** 

Item No. 12 -- Regarding discontinuance of mid-day service on line 
27-BRYANT between Army and 30th Streets. 

Mr. Peter Straus, Director of Planning, Municipal Railway, 
recommended discontinuance of mid-day service on the 27-BRYANT south 
of Army and 30th Streets due to low ridership. He said that a 
recent passenger count showed that only 100 people rode that segment 
of the line over an entire day. He said that alternative service is 
provided by the 24-DIVISADERO line. 

Ms. Ellen Giles submitted a petition with over 90 signatures of 
persons who support continuing the service. She said that the 
service is used by many senior citizens to avoid climbing the hill. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to accept the staff recommendation and 
discontinue the service. The motion died for lack of a second.

Report of the General Manager 

Hetch Hetchy Rate Legislation 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
that Congress has been attempting to legislate the rate at which the 
City can sell Hetch Hetchy power. The amendment to the continuing 
resolution passed the House of Representatives today. So far, the 
Senate version of the continuing resolution does not contain the 
amendment. The provision is headed for Conference Committee and 
will probably be heard Friday, September 28, 1984. He said that it 
is the consensus of all concerned that it would be best if this 
matter were resolved prior to that time. Our staff is continuing to 
meet and negotiate with our customers. 

Commissioner Sanger requested an executive session immediately 
following this meeting for a full update on this matter since there 
is litigation pending. 

Fast Pass Sales 

Mr. Nothenberg announced that the $20.00 Fast Pass went on sale 
September 24, 1984. Mr. Harold Gei ssonheimer , General Manager, 
Municipal Railway, said that the marketing program for the Fast Pass 
includes: a flyer which is being mailed with water bills and 
distributed through "take one" boxes; posters in all vehicles and 
stations; the display of Fast Pass information on the Muni Metro 
overhead signs; and a television commercial which is being developed, 

84-170 



Lift Equipped Service 

Mr. Geissenheimer announced that lift equipped service would begin 
October 18, 1984 on lines 9-San Bruno, 44-0 ' Shaughnessy and 71/71 
Limited - Noriega. Beginning November 15, 1984, the articulated 
buses on Geary Street will be officially designated for accessible 
service. These routes were selected in conjunction with the Elderly 
and Handicapped Advisory Committee. 

******** 
Introduction of New Business 

President Lenvin stated that two drivers from Delancey Street 
Foundation, which is part of the paratransit program, rendered above 
and beyond the call of duty service for a gentleman suffering from 
Altzheimers Disease. 

By common consent the Commission authorized the sending of a letter 
of commendation. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0466 — Adopting the "Implementation Plan for 
Section 12D Contracting - FY 1984-85." 

Commissioner Sanger questioned whether the set aside of less than 
10% for minority business enterprises and less than 2% for women 
business enterprises complies with the Administrative Code. 

Mr. Arnold Baker, Director, MBE/Contract Compliance, replied that 
the implementation plan is for planning purposes. He said that 
staff expects there may be some problems on the WBE side, but there 
are several possible ways to remedy the situation. The plan was 
developed from the projects funded for the year. There are 
contracts we expect to let where WBE's have participated in like 
contracts in the past and we expect they will be able to participate 
as a prime contractor. We will be expanding the MBE/WBE base by 
inclusion of the Cal-Trans directory and a new City directory of 
MBE/WBE contractors. 

Commissioner Flynn asked if Mr. Baker was satisfied that the plan 
meets the requirement. Mr. Baker replied affirmatively.

for the Cable Car Project. Out of the 21 awards given, seven were 
Muni related. Mr. Thomas Jordan, Director of Special Projects, 
received the award for Outstanding Employee of the Year, and several 
other awards related to the Elderly and Handicapped Program. It was 
a banner day for the PUC. 

American Public Transportation Association Conference 

President Lenvin stated that our Muni Operator, Mr. Ron Haren, came 
in eighth in the National Roadeo competition held at the APTA 
conference.. This was an excellent showing considering the fact that 
there was only a 20-point spread between Mr. Haren and the winner. 

******** 

Report of the General Manager 

MID/TIP Contract Situation 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that we initialed a statement of principles 
under which a contract with our two customers (MID and TID) could go 
forward. He also said that today Congressman Fazio initiated 
language to drop Section 110, which called for the selling of Hetch 
Hetchy power at cost, from a bill before Congress. We are doing 
what we can to minimize the negative impact of this issue. 

President Lenvin said that an informational packet on the issues 
related to Hetch Hetchy should be prepared as quickly as possible, 
so that people will be familiar with the Hetch Hetchy Project and 
the history of the City's involvement with it. 

Mr. Nothenberg responded that he would put someone on contract to 
prepare this information. 

******** 



Resolution No. 84-0474 — Public Hearing to consider authorizing the 
PUC to apply for, accept, and expend $12,192,000 of UMTA Section 3 
funds to construct a two-mile, two-way track and overhead trolley 
wire system connecting the Muni Metro J-Church rail line from its 
present terminus at 30th and Church Streets to the Metro Center at 
San Jose and Ocean Avenues. 

Mr. Anson Moran , Assistant General Manager, Finance, stated that 
this item has been before the Commission several times before. It 
is a $19-1/2 million project. We received engineering money in the 

84-177 



amount of $1.3 million from regional sources, were recently awarded 
$6 million from Section 9, and the current request is for the final 
$12.2 million from Section 3 money. 

Mr. Vern Anderson spoke in favor of the measure. He said that the 
project would provide a measure of efficiency with a shortcut in 
pulling out J and N cars. 

President Lenvin read a letter into the record from San Francisco 
Tomorrow, signed by Norman Rolfe, Chair, Transportation Committee. 
The letter supported the extension of the J-Church rail line from 
30th Street to San Jose and Ocean Avenues, and urged PUC to adopt 
the proposed measure. 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that Supervisor Quentin Kopp, in his capacity 
as President of the MTC, had been very helpful in doing funding work 
on this proposal. 

The public hearing was closed. 

On motion of Sanger, seconded by Giraudo, the motion was unanimously 

adopted. 

******** 

Item 10 — Authorizing the General Manager of Public Utilities to 
negotiate and enter into a contract with the San Francisco Super 
Bowl Host Committee, for the sale of coins commemorating Super Bowl 
XIX and the Cable Cars, which will be good for one ride on the Cable 
Car System. 

Mr. Robert B. Wallingford said that this item would never see the 
light of day because of insufficient financial support. He added, 
however, that there was still a need for a Cable Car Trust, and 
proposed a new coin promotion scheme for 1986. 

The matter was taken off calendar by President Lenvin. 

******** 

UEB Priorities 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that many of the smaller backlogged UEB 
projects would be packaged together so that we can proceed with the 
larger projects. 

President Lenvin said Commission should be aware of UEB priorities 
for projects. 

Commissioner Sanger agreed.

******** 

Introduction of Old Business 

Status of Forest Hill Station Construction Project 

Commissioner Sanger inquired about the status of the Forest Hill 
Station Construction Project. 

President Lenvin stated that staff had reported to the Commission at 
a prior meeting. 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that Supervisor Carol Ruth Silver brought up 
the matter of the Forest Hill Station Construction Project on Roll 
Call at the Board of Supervisors' meeting last week. He went on to 
say that there will probably be a hearing on the status of the 
project before the Board's Transportation Committee. 

President Lenvin said we should tell people why it is taking so long 
to complete the project. 

******** 

Report of the General Manager 

Death of Former Water Department General Manager 

Mr. Nothenberg sadly reported that retired Water Department General 
Manager and Chief Engineer Eugene Kelleher passed away last week. 
He went on to say that Mr. Arthur Jensen would continue to serve as 
Acting General Manager and Chief Engineer of the Water Department 
until a permanent appointment is made. 

Priority List of Utilities Engineering Bureau Projects 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that a priority list of UEB projects will be 
sent to the Commissioners next week. 

The priority list was calendared for discussion at the next regular 
meeting of the Commission on November 13, 1984. 



84-185 



Fast Pass Sales 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that, with the reduction in price, sales of 
Fast Passes for the month of October increased by 13 percent. He 
went on to say that although we sold about 10,000 more Fast Passes 
in October than we had in the previous month, we had anticipated 
selling almost twice as many more. If the Jarvis II initiative 
fails, we are prepared to launch a moderate advertising campaign. 

Equipment Reliability and Availability Report 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that the First Quarter Equipment Reliability 
and Availability Report shows that we are exceeding all of our goals 
and are continuing to increase our reliability and availability in 
at least two modes - diesel and LRV. Diesel vehicle reliability 
will be increased by a pick up in the bus delivery schedule. Over 
150 new buses have been delivered to date. We are beginning to see 
problems related to trolleys, however. Funding for a program to 
keep the 8-year old trolley fleet in good repair is being sought. 
The Mayor has agreed to include funding for our program in the third 
infrastructure package she is proposing, should Jarvis II not pass. 

Status of Proposed Edgewood Park Golf Course Project 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that the matter of the proposed Edgewood 
Park Golf Course Project will not come before the Commission in the 
immediate future. He went on to say that we are obligated to get 
clearance from the U.S. Forest Service and the Golden Gate National 
Recreation Area before giving a recreational easement on the 
proposed land. 

Commissioner Sanger suggested that we inform the public, as a 
courtesy, of the status of this proposed project. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0503 — Authorizing the General Manager of Public 
Utilities to execute a Professional Services Agreement with Mr. Tim 
Findley for the purpose of producing professional video tapes. 

President Lenvin stated that it ought to be specified that the work 
product is to belong exclusively to the Public Utilities Commission. 

Mr. Nothenberg said that he would have the legal staff copyright the 
video tapes produced by Mr. Findley. 

******** 

Item 10 — Authorizing a proposed roadway connection between the 
City limits of San Carlos and State Route 280 freeway near an 
existing Vista Point scenic overlook within the Crystal Springs 
watershed land. 

Mr. Arthur Jensen, Acting General Manager and Chief Engineer, San 
Francisco Water Department, clarified the Water Department's 
position on this proposed connection. He stated that the Water 
Department supported the construction of the proposed roadway 
connection, subject to the following conditions: (1) that fencing be 
provided to separate the roadway from the Water Department's lands, 
thereby preventing people from driving in to our watershed; (2) that 



84-186 



said fencing be maintained and controlled by the City of San Carlos 
or jointly by the City of San Carlos and San Mateo County; and (3) 
that the underpass shown on the drawing be enlarged to allow the 
passage of emergency vehicles. 

The resolution was amended to include the fact that the contract 
will be returned to the Commission for final approval. 

President Lenvin opened the meeting for public comments. 

Supervisor John Ward, representing the San Mateo County Board of 
Supervisors, stated that the proposed project would produce many 
benefits, including better traffic circulation, a substantial 
reduction in energy consumption, and improved security of the Vista 
Point. He also stated that there will be no cost impact to the City 
of San Francisco and no adverse impact on the watershed. 

Mr. Warren Shafer, City Administrator for the City of San Carlos, 
speaking in support of the proposed measure, said that the 
environmental review process has been completed. He also stated 
that construction of the proposed connection would benefit the San 
Francisco Public Utilities Commission in the following ways: better 
security and patrol of the Vista Point, and better fire access to 
the watershed property. He added that the wildlife usage in the 
watershed area would not be disturbed or interrupted. Mr. Shafer 
delivered a letter from the Mayor of Belmont, expressing support for 
the proposed connection. 

Mr. Raymond Lang, representing the Crestview Park Homeowners 
Association', stated that his Association is strongly opposed to the 
proposed project. He said that the proposed interchange, if 
permitted, would effectively destroy the Vista Point as a Vista 
Point. Mr. Lang stated that it would be illegal to construct the 
proposed connection, since the land to be used is dedicated park 
property. 

Mr. Larry Shapiro said that the proposed project would lead to a 
drastic increase in traffic on Club Drive, which would result in 
increased traffic fatalities. He went on to say that construction 
of the proposed roadway connection would turn the neighborhood into 
a speedway. 

Mr. John Derrick said that he was concerned about the problems that 
would be caused by the construction of the proposed connection, 
among them were the increase in light and noise caused by additional 
traffic. 

Ms. Lennie Roberts, representing the Committee for Green Foothills, 
read a prepared statement in opposition to the measure. She said 
that the construction of the proposed connection was not consistent 
with the Scenic and Recreation Easement covering this land, and that 
passage of this proposal would set a dangerous precedent thereby 
encouraging other cities to invade watershed lands. 

Mayor Victor Stoltz of the City of San Carlos, speaking in support 
of the measure, said that the proposed project would benefit the 
City of San Carlos as a whole. 



84-187 



Mr. N. J. Benedetti, speaking in favor of the measure, said that the 
project would be beneficial to the community. 

Mr. Neil Martin, City Planner for San Carlos, spoke in favor of the 
measure. He stated that the construction of the connection should 
reduce the number of cars using Club Drive. 

Commissioner Giraudo stated that he must support the proposed 
project since the Water Department has shown that it will not have a 
negative impact on the watershed. 

Commissioner Sanger stated that he is a strong supporter of local 

government dealing with local issues. He said that he is prepared 

to support the measure and that there were some minor benefits to us 
in terms of security. 

President Lenvin stated that she felt the Commission's primary duty 
was to make a decision based on the watershed. She said that she 
felt that this Commission cannot bind future Commissions. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to have the Commission adopt a policy of 
not approving any future east side road connections through the 
watershed from local roads to Interstate Highway 280 across the 
Scenic and Recreation Easement. The motion was seconded by 
Commissioner Giraudo. On the question, Commissioners Sanger and 
Giraudo voted "aye." President Lenvin voted "no.". The motion 
failed for lack of a majority of the Commission. 

The matter was- carried over to the next regular meeting of the 
Commission on November 13, 1984. The Secretary of the Public 
Utilities Commission was directed to notify the mayors of the cities 
adjacent to the watershed that the Commission would consider this 
policy at its next meeting. 

Commissioner Giraudo moved to authorize a proposed roadway 
connection between the City limits of San Carlos and State Route 280 
freeway near an existing Vista Point scenic overlook within the 
Crystal Springs watershed land, as amended. The motion was seconded 
by President Lenvin. On the question, President Lenvin and 
Commissioner Giraudo voted "aye." Commissioner Sanger voted "no." 
The motion failed for lack of a majority of the Commission. 

This matter was continued to the next regular meeting of the 
Commission on November 13, 1984. 

******** 

Item 11 — Presentation of a video tape on inspection of 
' Shaughnessy Dam 

A video tape, prepared by Mr. Tim Findley, was shown at the 
meeting. The film was made on September 8, 1984, and showed an 
underwater inspection of the toe and foundation of O ' Shaughnessy Dam 
at the downstream face for signs of erosion and leakage. 

Mr. Dean Coffey, General Manager, Hetch Hetchy Water and Power, 
stated that the State Division of Safety of Dams, determined that 
the dam was in safe condition based on its review of the taped 
record. He added that this film saved the City a great deal of 
money. 



84-188 



******** 

Item 15 — Status report on the Muni No. 33 Ashbury Extension 
Overhead Construction Project 

Mr. Leo Jed, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, Public 
Utilities Commission, reported that the design for the No. 33 
Ashbury Extension Overhead Construction Project was, for all 
practical purposes, complete. He also stated that the Utilities 
Engineering Bureau will be able to initiate construction in the 
spring of 1985. 

Commissioner Sanger said that he wanted staff to follow up on the 
issue of coordinating poles with the Pacific Gas and Electric 
Company, with the intention of undergrounding as much of the wiring 
as possible. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0509 — Awarding Hetch Hetchy Contract No. HH-675R 
to Anderson Constructors, Inc. 

The resolution was amended to make award of the contract contingent 
upon the approval of our Contract Compliance/MBE Officer. 

******** 

Item 21 — Authorizing a 10-year lease of a 0.90 acre of Water 
Department land in Santa Clara County to Prudential Insurance 
Company at an initial annual rental of $6,000. 

Commissioners Sanger and Giraudo wanted to know why we were 
proposing to rent almost an acre of land to one of the largest 
landowners in the country for only $500 a month. 

This matter was removed from the calendar until staff can provide an 
explanation for the rental rate. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0513 — Authorizing the General Manager of Public 
Utilities to execute a Personal Services Agreement with San 
Francisco State University. 

Ms. Michal Settles, Manager, Public Utilities Commission Training 
Unit, outlined the provisions of the proposed Agreement. She said 
it would allow the Public Utilities Commission to pay student 
interns for the work they perform in the various departments. 

Ms. Settles, who is leaving City service, was commended by the 
Commission for the outstanding job she has done while working for 
the City.

******** 
Introduction of Old Business 

Commission Giraudo inquired about the pending proposal to change 
service on Municipal Railway line 18 - 46th Avenue. Commissioner 
Sanger requested an update on Muni Metro service on the N-Judah 
line. Both of these subjects were scheduled for the November 27, 
1984 meeting. 

******** 

Report of the General Manager 

Personnel 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, 
announced that Ms. Diane Nygaard, Director of Safety/Training, 

84-199 



Municipal Railway, would be resigning to accept another position. 
He commended her for the outstanding job she did for the Municipal 
Railway. President Lenvin said that there had been a dramatic 
improvement in the safety program under Ms. Nygaard. On behalf of 
the Commission, President Lenvin expressed appreciation for her work 
and extended best wishes to her in her new position. 

Budget Schedule 

Mr. Nothenberg outlined the schedule for review of budget proposals 
and suggested scheduling discussion of the budget at the December 
27, 1984 Commission meeting. The budget must be approved by the 
Commission and submitted to the Controller by February 1, 1985. 

President Lenvin stated that the issue of extending peak service on 
Muni Metro needs to be addressed. Commissioner Sanger noted that 
the Commission had adopted a policy of not expanding service to 
downtown pending settlement of the Transit Impact Development Fee 
litigation. However, he said that he was willing to reopen the 
issue . 

Commissioner Sanger asked if a fare increase was contemplated to 
fund the budget. Mr. Nothenberg replied in the negative. 

President Lenvin requested that the issues raised today be addressed 
at the December 27, 1984 meeting. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0538 — Requesting the San Francisco Municipal 
Railway Improvement Coporation to provide funds for unforeseen costs 
related to the completion of the Cable Car Rehabilitation Project. 

Commissioner Sanger expressed concern that the noise study had not 
been undertaken immediately following the Commission's declaration 
of emergency. In addition, he said that the Commission had 
requested that the consultant be from outside the San Francisco 
area. Mr. Nothenberg replied that the design consultants had 
requested the opportunity to review the situation under their firm's 
obligation to provide a functioning system. They were given time to 
propose a solution. Mr. Leo Jed, Deputy General Manager and Chief 
Engineer, PUC, said that at the same time staff was soliciting 
proposals from other firms. Those firms indicate it will be from 9 
to 16 weeks before they could furnish a report. 

Commissioner Barletta expressed his dismay at the speed at which the 
noise problem is being addressed. He suggested separating the noise 

problem from the structural study. 

Mr. Nothenberg pointed out that the design engineers may come up 
with some recommendations which could be implemented while staff 
obtains a report from another consultant. 

In response to questions by Commissioner Flynn, Mr. Jed said that 
the construction management firm of O'Brien and Kreitzberg and 
Associates would be performing work which is beyond their original 
contract. Mr. Nothenberg added that when resources become available 
staff would submit an amendment to their contract to the 
Commission. Commissioner Flynn requested that prior to the 
negotiation of an amendment to the contract that the Commission be 
furnished a checkoff list of all of the work to be completed under 
the original contract. That way any new work can be separated from 
that which we have coming under the old contract. 

******** 



84-200 



Resolution No. 84-0539 — Adopting a policy that this Commission 
will not in the future approve any east side road connections 
through the watershed from local roads to Interstate Highway 280 
across the Scenic and Recreation Easement. 

President Lenvin announced that all local jurisdictions adjacent to 
the watershed in San Mateo county were notified of this meeting to 
consider the proposed policy. The meeting was opened for public 
testimony. No one came forward to speak on the policy. 

Commissioner Sanger stated for clarification that adoption of the 
policy would not affect the proposed San Carlos roadway since the 
intent of the policy is to indicate that approval of the San Carlos 
rodeway would not set a precedent. 

On the question, Commissioners Lenvin, Sanger, Flynn and Giraudo 
voted "Aye." Commissioner Barletta voted "No," 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0540 — Authorizing a roadway connection between 
the City limits of San Carlos and Interstate Highway 280. 

President Lenvin announced that a public hearing had been held on 
October 23, 1984 on this matter. On the question Commissioners 
Lenvin, Sanger and Giraudo voted "Aye." Commissioners Flynn and 
Barletta voted "No."

Communications 

Commissioner Flynn referred to a letter from Mr. Harold 
Geissenheimer , General Manager, Municipal Railway, to the California 
Department of Transportation, regarding Caltrans' intention to sell 
two-day Muni transit passes for $6.00 during the January 1985 Super 
Bowl. Commissioner Flynn asked if this would require a modification 
of the fare structure. Mr. Geissenheimer replied that $3.00 is the 
rate for an all-day pass on the cable cars. In this case the pass 
would be valid for two days. Therefore, it is not a modification of 
fares .

Resolutions No. 84-0560, 84-0561 and 84-0562 — Hearing to consider 
the feasibility of service adjustments to Municipal Railway lines 
18 - 46TH AVENUE, 27-BRYANT and 39-COIT, and restoration of a 
portion of former line 58-LEAVENWORTH. 

27-BRYANT 

Mr. Peter Straus, Director of Planning, Municipal Railway, described 
the proposed route changes with the aid of maps. Line 27-BRYANT 
operates to 27th and Mission Streets, with a mid-day and Saturday 
extension along 29th, Castro, 30th and Noe Streets. He said that 
staff is recommending discontinuance of the extension due to lack of 
patronage and the fact that alternative service is now available on 
the 24-DIVISADERO. Discontinuance would result in an annual savings 
of approximately $104,000 per year. 

39-COIT 

In 1979, line 39-COIT was extended to the Fisherman's Wharf area 
with the intention of attracting tourists to use public transit to 
go to Coit Tower rather than cars. Part of the plan was to restrict 
traffic and parking at Coit Tower, and to use the Visitors and 
Convention Bureau and Fisherman's Wharf merchants to publicize the 
service. Mr. Straus said that these things never happened. Now, 
staff is recommending discontinuance of the Fisherman's Wharf 
extension due to lack of patronage. He said that staff has received 
comments about the need for residents to get to a senior activity 
program at the neighborhood center and to the supermarket. To meet 
that need he recommended a revised route from Telegraph Hill 
Boulevard, along Lombard, Mason, Columbus and Union to Montgomery. 
Discontinuance of the Fisherman's Wharf portion of the line will 
save $320,000 annually. 

18 - 46th AVENUE 

Mr. Straus said that the 18 line currently runs south around Lake 
Merced on a 15 minute headway, serving the Recreation Center for the 
Handicapped, the John Muir Apartments, Lake Merced Hill, San 
Francisco State dormitories, and a portion of Parkmerced. Crestlake 
residents have requested restoration of 18 line service along Sloat 
Boulevard and into Stonestown Shopping Center. Four proposals have 
been developed. The first would split the existing service by 
routing alternate trips to Stonestown via Sloat Boulevard instead of 
around Lake Merced. This would result in 30 minute headways on each 
segment and would cost $37,000 a year for additional peak period 
service. Another alternative would be a community service line on 
Sloat Boulevard operating on a 30 minute headway, with 20 minute 
service on the 18 line. This would cost $130,000 a year. Next in 
cost would be the split route with 20 minute service on each branch 
and a short line to Playland, at an annual cost of $260,000. The 
fourth alternative would be a community service route on a 30 minute 
headway, without changing the present 15 minute service on the 18 
line. That would cost $318,000 annually. 

58-LEAVENWORTH 

Mr. Straus stated that the proposed route for the new 58 line would 
serve the lower slopes of Nob Hill and a portion of Russian Hill. 
The proposed route would operate as a continuous loop on the 
northern end, via Leavenworth, Vallejo, Hyde and Union, with a 
terminal at 5th and Market Streets. Two variations were proposed 
based upon hours of service. Service from 9:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. 
would cost $398,000; service from 7:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M. would be 
$550,000 a year. 

84-207 



President Lenvin was excused at 2:50 P.M. Vice President Sanger 
presided . 

The meeting was opened for public comments. 

Ms. Celine Passage, a volunteer for the Recreation Center for the 
Handicapped and Mr. Jay Katz, representing the Center, spoke in 
favor of retaining the present 15 minute, 18 line service to the 
Center . 

Mr. William Ehrlich, representing 200 homes at Lake Merced Hill, 
supported retaining the present service level. 

Mr. Fred Newman, member of the Board of Directors for the Stonestown 
Merchants Association, and Ms. Idamay Brewster, Executive Director, 
urged routing the 18 line into the shopping center. 

Mr. Don R. Dutil and Mr. Vernon Anderson, representing the Crestlake 
Property Owners Association urged routing the 18 line along Sloat 
Boulevard for access by residents to the medical center and shopping 
area. Mr. Anderson favored the 20 minute split route alternative. 

Ms. Helen Giles suggested increasing the hours of operation of the 
27-BRYANT mid-day extension so that working people can use it during 
the week, and people attending church can use it on Sundays. 

Ms. Lorrene Grasso requested rerouting of the 27-BRYANT to service 
29th and Mission Streets. 

Ms. Nan Roth and Ms. Sue Cauthen representing the Telegraph Hill 
Dwellers, supported retention of service on the 39-COIT to the 
Fisherman's Wharf area. They suggested publicizing how people can 
tour the City on public transit and retaining the current route 
until such an effort has been tried. 

Mr. John W. Holmes supported the position of the Telegraph Hill 
Dwellers. In response to questions by the Commission, he said that 
signs were never posted nor were traffic restrictions imposed as had 
been discussed when the route was first adopted. 

The following people spoke in favor of restoring bus service along a 
portion of the area which had formerly been served by the 
58-LEAVENWORTH line: 

Ms. Helen Haskins, 1000 Chestnut Street 
Ms. Lila Jean Jarvis, 1001 Pine Street 
Ms. Shirley Bates, Russian Hill Neighbors 
Mr. Edward Williams for Madonna House 
Ms. Celia Margulus, 1001 Pine Street 
Ms. Phyllis Abramson, 1855 Geary Street 
Ms. E. J. Ford, 755 Bush Street 
Mr. Donald J. Loudon, 1070 Green Street 
Mr. Ygnacio Bonillas, 1080 Chestnut Street 
Mr. D. C. Texeira, 1000 Chestnut Street 
Ms. Enid Lim, Nob Hill Neighbors 

The following people spoke in opposition to restoring the 58 line: 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, San Francisco Tomorrow and 

Russian Hill Forum 
Ms. Patricia McAteer, 1201 Vallejo Street 
Mr. B. W. MacDonald, 1324 Jackson Street 

The public comment period for all four lines was closed. 



84-208 



Commissioner Giraudo expressed concern about the level of service to 
the Crestlake area and the light ridership on the 18 line around the 
lake. He said that San Francisco has a responsibility to service 
the Stonestown Shopping Center and Medical Center. Commissioner 
Giraudo said that he is in favor of adding some service to the 
area. He requested ridersip data on the line. It was agreed that 
this matter would be reconsidered during the budget process. 

Commissioner Flynn moved to discontinue the mid-day extension of the 
27-BRYANT. Commissioner Giraudo seconded. Resolution No. 84-0560 
was adopted. 

Commissioner Flynn moved to discontinue the Fisherman's Wharf 
portion of the 39-COIT and to route the line along Lombard and Mason 
to Columbus Avenue. 

Commissioner Sanger expressed the opinion that the only solution is 
for the Telegraph Hill Dwellers to take the initiative in order to 
obtain traffic restrictions on Telegraph Hill Boulevard so that 
staff can effectively operate bus service to Coit Tower. 

Resolution No. 84-0561 was adopted. 

Commissioner Giraudo was excused at 4:25 P.M. 

Commissioner Barletta expressed the opinion that for anyone to 
expect residents who were formerly served by the 58 line to rely on 
cable car service, is an illusion. Commissioner Barletta moved to 
restore the 58 line on a 12 hour basis with a loop at Vallejo, Hyde, 
Union and Leavenworth. Commissioner Flynn seconded. Resolution No. 
84-0562 was adopted. 

President Lenvin returned at 4:48 P.M. 



******** 



Item No. 11 — Presentation of Street Management Program. 

Mr. Paul Toliver, Deputy General Manager, Operations, Municipal 
Railway, stated that the major goals of the program are: 1) to 
implement coordinated line supervision to improve service 
reliability; 2) to improve management of the street operation; and 
3) to improve team work of street supervisors working with one 
another, and between the Field Operations and Field Support 
Divisions. He stated that a pilot program was undertaken during the 
month of August, 1984, involving 9 lines and 4 transit corridors. A 
key element of the program is training middle managers, Transit 
Manager I's, to plan and manage the activities in their area. 
Another element was the initiation of safety ride checks by 
out-of-uniform Transit Supervisors. Also, the supervisory citation 
patrol was implemented to help clear corridors of severe traffic 
congestion. The pilot program expanded the use of the duplex mode 
of radio communications. This is communication between supervisors, 
through the base station, without the base station taking part. 

He said that the second phase of the program began October 7, and 
will continue through December 23, 1984, focusing on 12 lines. The 



84-209 



basic elements of the program will be continued with certain 
refinements based upon the experience of the August pilot program,

*********** 



Report of the General Manager 

Safe Harbor Leases 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
that negotiations were nearing completion for the sale of safe 
harbor leases for this year. He said that the Department would be 
selling about $26 million of depreciable bases which should generate 
approximately $4.8 million to the Public Utilities Commission for 
the sale of those tax benefits. He said that last year's sale 
brought $1.7 million which is earning interest. Some of those funds 
will be put into escrow to protect against indemnity clauses. 

Lease of Property 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that a short-term lease had been negotiated 
with the Port Commission for space at Pier 90. All of the excess 
buses will be removed to Pier 90, and 188 old buses will be offered 
for sale. 



84-216 



Moccasin Generating Unit 

Mr. Dean Coffey, General Manager, Hetch Hetchy Water and Power, 
reported that on December 6, 1984 there was an occurrence in the 
generating unit at Moccasin which caused the unit to shut down due 
to excess vibration. The unit has been taken apart, but no 
mechanical failure was found. He said that the department is 
continuing to look for the cause of the failure before reassembling 
the unit. Cost of repairs is estimated to be $25,000. 

Resolution No. 84-0574, declaring the Moccasin generating unit to be 
an emergency condition, was unanimously adopted. 

Project Managers 

Mr. Leo Jed, Deputy General Manager, Bureau of Engineering and 
Construction Management, PUC, stated that last year the department 
was able to classify, utilize and increase the number of positions 
of Project Managers. 8 employees were transferred to the new 
positions and 4 new people were recently hired. He introduced the 
following new Project Managers: Barbara Moy, who will manage the 
Harrison Street Facility; Ken Jew, who will work on a variety of 
Water Department and Hetch Hetchy projects, including Crystal 
Springs Pipeline #3; Ralph Herrera, who will be starting work next 
week; and Edgar West, who will develop a scheduling operation for 
the department along with managing various projects. 

President Lenvin welcomed the new Project Managers and noted that 
the Commission has placed a high priority on improving the 
scheduling and completion of capital projects. 

Commissioner Flynn expressed pleasure in the fact that these 
selections have opened up the engineering classes. 

Cable Car Noise 

Mr. Jed reported that there are two contractors working on the cable 
car noise problem in separate parts of the City and on separate 
components. He said that the contractors have been able to achieve 
an overall reduction of 6 dB(A) and a 7 or 8 dB(A) reduction in the 
most irritating frequency of that noise. He said that a report is 
expected in 3 months on the cable problem. He added that he hoped 
to have some interim solutions in the next 2 weeks. 

******** 

Items 9 and 10 — Discussion of the Mayor's comments on the 1983-84 
Management by Objectives performance reports and staff response; and 
1st Quarter 1984-85 performance reports. 

Municipal Railway 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that the Mayor had expressed concern about 
street management programs. He said that staff had addressed this 
area at the last Commission meeting when the Street Management 
Program was presented. He said that another concern of the Mayor 
was missed service due to a lack of sufficient operators. This is 
an ongoing problem. We are continuing to work on reducing 
absenteeism and processing requisitions through the system. 



84-217 



An unresolved issue is whether the department is authorized enough 
operators in the Annual Salary Ordinance. He said that the 
department is working with the City Attorney's Office to determine 
if operators can be budgeted by hours rather than number of 
employees . 

The Mayor was concerned about safety. The Municipal Railway is 
implementing the recommendations of the Peer Group Review and will 
have the group back to monitor its implementation program. 

Another area of concern was Muni Metro service. Improvements in 
reliability were noted in the 1st quarter reports. Mr. Nothenberg 
said that brake improvements are being tested and the emergency 
response procedures are undergoing review. 

Water Department 

The Mayor was concerned about implementation of the Metcalf and Eddy 
report. Mr. Nothenberg said that a supplemental appropriation to 
implement the recommendations was approved by the Commission and is 
pending in the Mayor's Office. Also, there was concern about 
minimizing complaints regarding street work done by the Water 
Department. Mr. Nothenberg said that this is being accomplished by 
preparing better specifications and working with the Department of 
Public Works to develop an ordinance which will control contractors 
working in the streets. 

Bureau of Engineering and Construction Management 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that the Mayor was concerned about the 
bureau's backlog of work. He said that the recently approved 
supplemental appropriation and the addition of new Project Managers 
should address the problem. 

Bureau of Personnel and Training 

Mr. Nothenberg said that the Mayor had inquired about the efficiency 
of the Personnel Bureau. He reported that the bureau has been 
strengthened by the addition of Nora Rios Reddick to take charge of 
Operations. In addition, the position control system is now in 
place . 

Mr. Nothenberg introduced the General Managers of the operating 
departments, who in turn introduced their unit managers who reported 
on their 1st quarter performance. 

Commissioner Flynn was excused at 4:05 P.M. 

******** 

Resolution No. 84-0591 — Accepting work performed in the 
development of the Peninsula Watershed Management Program as 
satisfactorily completed and authorizing final paymemt to J. E. 
Greig, Inc., Contractor. 

Mr. Greig, the consultant, presented an overview of the final report 
with the aid of a map of the peninsula watershed lands. He said 
that the goals of the study were: to maintain water quality, 
maintain water quantity, create an ecological reserve which would 
continue the past 50-100 years of undisturbed development, continue 
the wildlife preserve, develop the area as an ecological study area 
for universities and schools, and develop a comprehensive fire 
prevention program. 

84-218 



President Lenvin asked about protection against vandalism. Mr. 
Greig replied that the type of activity the department has now is 
the best solution to the problem. He added that possibly a little 
more aggressive law enforcement action against repeat offenders 
would be appropriate. The perimeter of the property is so extensive 
that people cannot be prevented from entering the property. Only 
through a system of patrol can people be discouraged from entering 
the property.

President Lenvin stated that in addition to the letters received by

concerned about the level of funding for paratransit services next 
year .

Resolution No. 84-0595 — Rescinding action to restore the 
58-LEAVENWORTH line. 

Under old business, Commissioner Sanger said that the Board of 
Supervisors disapproved the Commission's action to discontinue 
Municipal Railway service to Fisherman's Wharf on the 39-COIT line. 
He stated that he had voted to resume service on line 58-LEAVENWORTH 
based upon the savings that could be achieved by reducing service on 
lines 27-BRYANT and 39-COIT. Since those savings are not forth- 
coming, he moved to rescind the Commission's action which would have 
restored service to line 58-LEAVENWORTH (Resolution No. 84-0562, 
adopted November 27, 1984). Commissioner Giraudo seconded, and 
expressed the opinion that the Board of Supervisors should deal with 
service adjustments as a package, the same as the Commission does, 
rather than individually. Resolution No. 84-0595 was adopted.

Item No. 14 — Regarding a lease of 1.07 acres to Charles J. 
Petrocchi . 

Commissioner Sanger asked if the rent had been discounted because of 
an assumption of our right to terminate the lease if the property 
were needed for transportation purposes. He questioned the rental 
rate in comparison to other properties of similar size, use and 
location. Ms. Mathea Falco, Manager, Bureau of Claims and 
Contracts, replied that the rent is the market rate. She said that 
she would obtain additional data on the rental price from the Real 
Estate Department. 

Commissioner Sanger suggested that in those cases where the 
department wants to have the right to reenter and terminate, 
revenues could be maximized by providing for the amortization of any 
improvements. Then, if we do choose to reenter, we could pay for 
the unamortized improvements. 

Commissioner Sanger said that he favors putting leases out to bid, 
rather than negotiating with the existing tenant. 

Items 14, 15 and 16, concerning leasing of various properties were 
continued . 

******** 
Resolution No. 84-0618 — Rejecting all bids received for WD-1827. 

Mr. Dave Stacy, President of Stacy & Witbeck, said that his firm bid 
the job as instructed at the pre-bid conference, with regard to the 
MBE/WBE requirements. He said that his firm should be awarded the 
contract since they were the only firm that complied. 

Mr. Leo Jed, Deputy General Manger, Bureau of Engineering and 
Construction Management, stated that the bureau put out bid 
documents which contained conflicting clauses regarding MBE/WBE 
prime and subcontractors. Because of this, the City Attorney's 
Office has advised that all bids should be rejected. 

President Lenvin requested that a discussion of the MBE/WBE 
ordinance be calendared for the January 22, 1985 meeting. 

******** 
Item No. 9 — Discussion of 1985-86 budget issues. 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that the budget must be approved by the 
Commission and submitted to the Mayor's Office by February 1, 1985. 
An outline of the budget was distributed. He said that instructions 
from the Mayor's Office stated that there shall be no increase of 
general fund expenditure by the Municipal Railway. We are 
interpreting that to be that the Mayor does not want a reduction in 
services. Therefore, we are proposing to continue the current level 
of service. In addition, we have a minuscule amount of new programs 



w 



hich are deemed to be essential, totaling $2.2 million. 



84-227 



Mr. Nothenberg described each new program, the amount of money it 
would cost and the number of new positions required, if any. 

Regarding the handicapped lift maintenance program, Commissioner 
Sanger questioned the need to hire 3 employees to cycle the lift 
mechanism on buses. Mr. Nothenberg explained that the new 
employments would not be assigned to the specific task of cycling 
the lifts. Instead, cycling of lifts would be included in the 
nightly servicing thereby adding manhours to the servicing program. 
One position would be added on the peak shift at each of the diesel 
divisions to offset the increase in servicing manhours. President 
Lenvin said that her preference would be to add a minimum of 
$200,000 to the paratransit program. 

Regarding the cable car terminal supervision program, Commissioner 
Sanger said that he would like to see a permanent supervisor at 
California and Drumm Streets. 

Commissioner Sanger expressed his dismay over the fact that funds 
are not available for expansion of peak hour services. 

President Lenvin said that there is considerable support for an 
increase in the senior fare, if the additional funds are used for 
expansion of paratransit services. Commissioner Sanger pointed out 
that each additional nickel added to the senior fare would produce 
$200,000 more in annual revenue. 

Commissioner Sanger favored looking at an increase in the price of 
the adult fare with no change in the Fast Pass, as well as a change 
in the senior fare. He said that it would be reasonable if the 
equivalent of the increase in the senior fare were devoted to 
expanding paratransit service and the increase in the cash fare were 
allocated to peak period service.
